About us

We named Split Rock Distillery for a dirt road we travel often—the shortcut between our two homes. It’s the only shortcut we’ve ever taken to bring you Maine’s first organic spirits. When we founded Split Rock, we promised ourselves we would handcraft our spirits the right way. That meant the long way: authentic, small batch grain to glass, selling no spirit not our own. We spent evenings and weekends building a distillery and tasting room by hand in an old barn on historic Route One. We sourced organic grains and fruits from the fields of farmers we count as friends. We demanded organic sugars and drew waters so pure locals still harvest winter ice. We refined our fermentations again and again to showcase the unique signatures of our still. And through it all, we gathered knowledge, inspiration, a helping hand and an honest opinion from other distillers, family and friends, and every stranger fairly met. There is a real split rock on Split Rock Road and we still drive past it almost every day—a rough plug of granite, cracked open long ago by time or skill (or a little of both) to reveal an unexpected smoothness within. That is the spirit of Split Rock. —MATT AND TOPHER

Queue up Charlie, pour a bourbon, grab this bar and take a trip down memory lane!

70% Organic Dark Chocolate Bourbon Bar made by Maine's very own Bixby & Co., who set out to create a chocolate bar unlike any other we have ever had. Certified organic single origin Dominican Republic cacao nibs are soaked in our very own organic Bourbon Whiskey for several weeks. The resulting bar is robust and complex with a pronounced smooth and woody flavor profile. A true one of a kind chocolate experience, and a collaboration that makes us beyond thankful for our dear friends at Bixby & Co.!

    a special bar for a special occasion

    Posted by Lauren on May 16th 2020

    Who the heck buys a $12 chocolate bar? It’s not even big. And it costs $12! Well, don’t tell my mother, but I bought one of these bourbon bars. I was getting some hand sanitizer anyway, and bought the bar as a birthday present to myself. It wasn’t an impulse purchase, either. I’d been looking at the web site off and on for a couple of weeks and thinking about that bar. If you’re reading this, you already read the description. Sounds really good, doesn’t it? You’re maybe wondering if it tastes like bourbon. And if you haven’t tried Bixby bars before, you should! Anyway, the chocolate bar was part of my pandemic-style early May birthday celebration. First, there was the special trip out of the house during business hours to get it and the hand sanitizer. I’d been working full-time at home for 6+ weeks and not going out much, so just driving on Route 1 was a good time. Then on my birthday, two days later, I carefully unwrapped it and took photos because it is so lovely. I divided the bar into three equal pieces so that I could take one piece to my brother (who I visited very briefly and safely with that day) and have two pieces for my vegan husband and me to enjoy that evening. I didn’t get any feedback about the bar from my brother, but here is what my sweetie and I think about this item. It’s a nice dark chocolate bar, but it’s overpriced. This price, or possibly even a higher one, would be appropriate if the profits were being donated to a charity. Because it is so unusual and beautiful, it might actually be a good fundraising item. I could see people bidding on these bars as raffle prizes or silent auction items. I would buy another one if it were for a good cause.
